Happiness is being covered in paint!

On a recent visit to Frameworks in Blyth just before Christmas we bought this painting to go in our red bedroom. This is the “after” picture as there were several words that were obscured by paint, some indecipherable yellow words and also 3 of the hearts had large swathes of gold leaf over them. I’m really pleased with how it’s looking. I still want to define the hearts with some black relief paint and outline some of the words.

Today, Gordon and I went on a magical mystery tour of the area looking for the houses of two of his new clients. We ended up in Blyth at Frameworks, where we had a lovely lunch serenaded by a gentleman piano player. This picture is of one of the showrooms upstairs. I was very good and didn’t buy anything…….. not to say I wasn’t tempted though!

This is my little writing desk which I have positioned on the first half landing on our staircase. It reminds me of the Kermit the Frog song “Halfway down the stairs  is the place where I sit” . I looked everywhere for a small desk that would fit, and drove up to Blyth to an elegant shop called Frameworks . It has a lovely cafe/restaurant with beautiful food and a piano player at lunch time. A gentleman played old style music and I’ll give away my age because I recognised music which Russ Conway used to play on the BBC when I was a child. I’ve colour themed all my knick knacks, and am pleased with the small picture I painted on the easel on the left. It still needs some encrusting I think……. a few micro beads perhaps or some ultrafine glitter to add that little element of sparkle? The little silver daily calendar on the right came from my Mum & Dad’s home and is especially dear to me.
